There's nothing quite like the National's Capital, and Washington, D.C. is a city that needs to be on everyone's bucket list. It's a treasure trove of free, wonderful museums that are chock full of our nation's history, as well as gorgeous architecture. So much history to explore, regardless of your politics.

Washington D.C is clean and sophisticated. Everyone dresses to impress and the restaurants for the most part do the same. Cosmopolitan, touristy and historical. What else do you expect from the capital city?

The nation's capital. Most people think you come here to see the tourist attractions like the White House, Monument, and all the historical museums. But there's so much more to do here. It's such a fun town to go out in and getting to try hole in the wall restaurants. Definitely fun if you want to see some of the nation's history with some modern twists
